    Editorial Review

    This gorgeous adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's story is well worth watching with the whole family. Produced for Canadian television, it's one of those rare productions that actually sticks to the book and even enhances it through first-rate performances and an excellent script. Set on bucolic Prince Edward Island in the late 19th century, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this movie today as much as I loved it when I was 10....
    I saw this movie for the first time when I was something like 10 years old, and immediately fell in love with Anne Shirley. I have now read everything by L.M. Montgomery that I can get my hands on, and am as big a fan as ever. This movie is a beautiful version of a beautiful book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Way things should be
    "Anne of Green Gables" shows how a combination of love, honesty, hard work, tolerance and integrity is the perfect mix for bringing out the best from the potential in anyone, even in a non-traditional family. It's an incredibly refreshing break from today's society, where lying and manipulation have become almost a norm in much of the world we know.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic
    All the great reviews written previously say it all - Anne of Green Gables the movie is a timeless classic of the classic novel. I've been watching this movie since I've been a child, and I still watch it as an adult. A movie like this doesn't need "special features" for it to be attractive as a DVD(Although the commentary is great!). Just the fact that no matter how long I keep this and how often I watch this movie, it won't change like VHS does. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Could well be the best DVD on the market
    Given that the movie is wonderful, perhaps the last of the great Hollywood musicals and a charmer for all generations, this DVD is still remarkably wonderful. Disney has done a clean-up job on the film that makes it shine. The audio is rich and wonderful, including the all-important ORIGINAL stereo soundtrack (feh to multi-channel remixes!). The special features even manage to elucidate the process of filmmaking in manner intriguing to both the cineaste parent and Mary-mad children.
    5-0 out of 5 stars thank you, Julie and Dick (and Walt, of course)!
    I think I like this movie more now than when I was a kid! And the extra features on this 2-DVD set are absolutely wonderful. Great interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, one of the Sherman brothers (songwriter), and the girl who played Jane that really show how special the movie-making process was, which then translated to joy on the screen.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful story and lovely music
    Mary Poppins must be one of the loveliest filming produced by Disney studios. This musical movie is extremely well produced and has outstanding actor work. The scenes are of high quality despite the whole story was filmed indoors. Even the little part of London was reproduced in Disney studio. The music from Sherman brothers is world famous and well known. When you hear the first tunes, you might say: Hey I've heard that somewhere! Having this DVD on your shelf would please both you and your younger fellows. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost as wonderful as the first!
    I love this movie almost as much as I love the first one! While not entirely true to the books, it does at least pull most of it stories from the books in one form or another. Whether or not the stories are pure L.M. Montgomery, this movie is true Anne. It's worth all five hours to get to the ending!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Endearing Sequel
    This is an impressive sequel and a very good looking follow-up to ANNE OF THE GREEN GABLES. It is great to see Megan Follows as Anne Shirley once again. Megan Follows is just perfect in this role. Anne Shirley is now a bit older, has become a teacher and is quite involved in a society away from her rural settings. This gradual progression of characters and story from this original is very welcome and enjoyable. It is very endearing in many ways as was the original

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous Musical
    "The Phantom of the Opera" may not be my new favorite movie, but it's certainly one of the most sensually appealing.It succeeds in being an appealing musical, romance, mystery, and period piece all at once.Everything in the movie is a treat for the eyes and the ears, from the rich period sets and costumes to the Andrew Lloyd Webber songs to the gorgeous cast members.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
    I love this movie! The scenes like the first one where it goes to color is beautiful. Of course, I'm very suprised about something: the fact that some adults don't even know why his hair changes when his mask is taken off!!(No offense to them). So, why does this happen? The black hair is a WIG!!! Look closely and you'll realize that before he goes out in that climatic scene, he checks his hair; correct me, WIG. When Christine takes off his mask, his hair literallycomes off as a WIG. I love the music, too, especially the phantom of the opera song (The phantom of the opera is there/inside my mind).Watch it!!!!! :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really not enough stars for this DVD
    Someone, quite recently, as well as long ago, said that the film version of the musical was dead. If memory serves, they said it died with "Hello Dolly" or some such work. Anyone who believes that will need to watch "Phantom: on DVD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great 1970's Music Moment
    When I saw The Last Waltz I knew it was for a moment in time which would never come back. The artists were so special and so good and now some are no longer with us. I loved Joanie Mitchell's number and the Band's many numbers as well as Van Morrison's number. Robbie Robertson was so good looking.

    3-0 out of 5 stars It only took six measures
    Six measures into the first tune, "Don't Do It," I knew they'd blown it with this release. As a fan of the movie for years, I wore out my videocassette copy, and grabbed the Special Edition DVD.

    So says Kristin Davis, as Charlotte, when confronted with the idea of performing a particular sex act.This hilarious and clever series has many clever lines and funny moments that pass in the blink of an eye. I can't believe it has taken me this long to finally watch the show that everyone has been talking about for eight years.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sex and the City - Complete First Season
    Excellent- I expected it to be great, but it was even better than expected, I received it must faster than I anticipated. The show is just great. I have seen the shows I missed andI am looking forward to completing the entire series of the show.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous
    Sex And The City is one of the comedies for the '90's, a slick, classy affair that's not afraid to push the boundaries to the limit. It's graphic (sort of) depiction of sex is ground-breaking, yet it doesn't forget it's main reason for being out there, to be funny.Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon are exemplary as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. The supporting players (Chris Noth, etc.) are helpful and the plotlines are racy and hilarious.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bloody awful
    This is just awful. And I mean spine-tingingly bad. The songs are so terrible and so insistent that it makes you feel like kicking the TV in. The idea of the film is certainly interesting....certainly if it weren't played out as a musical. But it is and you can just see some of the actors baffled as to the sheer stupidity of what their doing. Some such as Tim Curry revel in the sheer nonsense this film provides. But seriously, those songs are beyond awful. My hatred for them rivals having to listen to Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights and that's intense. But Kate Bush has made some great songs so that's OK. This however, is the movie equivalent of getting an axe through your spinal cord. How it's achieved cult status is something that will have to go down on the peculiar habits of humans.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent And Gritty Crime Drama!
    With so many reviews already posted here on amazon, I really don't think there is any more that I could add, other than to say this is an amazing crime-thriller. From the very beginning, to the very end this is the quintessential mob film of all time. The story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) has already been discussed, I would just like to add that if there is anyone who has not seen this classic, do so. More importantly, it belongs in your DVD collection.
    5-0 out of 5 stars These are working guys, living it up and "Earning" at all costs.
    Scorcese & Pileggi's masterpiece on the life of Henry Hill as a Brooklyn NY mob wise-guy is great film. While not my favorite Martin Scorsese movie it is a stunning achievement, and one of his very best movies.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best film of the 90's
    GoodFellas is Martin Scorsese's masterpiece, following the life of a gangster named Henry Hill. It charts his way up from working at a mob-controlled cabstand to becoming a member of the gang, and eventually turning to the witness protection program to save his life. The movie is full of unforgettable moments, particularly the famous "Do you think I'm funny" scene. Joe Pesci steals every scene he's in as the murderous psycopath Tommy, and rightfully won the best supporting actor Oscar. This movie contains what may be the best movie sequence ever made: Henry, while high on cocaine, driving around town running a mixture of normal and mob errands (e.g. In narration, he says: I had to stop by Sandy's place to mix the cocaine then get home and check the tommato sauce for dinner...) while being followed by a helicopter. The scene is shot extremely haphazardly, making you feel as though your'e in Henry's place. This movie's greatness cannot be expressed in words; you have to see it for yourself. Also recommended: Miller's Crossing, Casino, Taxi Driver, and The Godfather. ... Read more

    The deal with Somewhere in Time is simple: if you have ever been in love, or have a romantic bone in your body, and if you can put aside for 90 minutes the cynicism we all seem to need to survive this modern world, then you will love this film. 5-0 out of 5 stars Christopher Reeve as an "actor"

    5-0 out of 5 stars X2 is an awesome film!
    With dazzling special effects, spectacular battles, touching romance and sacrafice, and an even edgier Wolverine, X2: X-Men United is even better than the original! The second installment of the X-Men Trilogy, United proves to be a fantastic addition to the series, as well as a great action film on its own!
    5-0 out of 5 stars X-MAN-- SO COOOOL
    X-man is my favorite movie.The characters are Wolverine/Iceman/and Flameman.It takes place in the White House.It takes place in the present.I like the movie for the fighting.One reason I like it is the way X-Man sticks knives out of his hands.I like the way they fight.I think kids 8 and up would like the movie because of thier powers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than The First!
    X-Men fans, comic book fans, action movie fans, and all-around good movie fans, SEE THIS MOVIE!The first movie set the bar high, but this movie tops it.Right from the beginning you know you are in for a real treat.I was spellbound the first time I watched it, and have watched it again and again since.This is a title that is worth owning, as are the other 2 X-Men movies (both 1 and 3).Once again Hugh Jackman pulls off playing Wolverine impeccably, and the other characters deliver too.If you are a comic book fan or an action movie fan, getting the X-Men trilogy is a no-brainer.Enjoy! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Film: And A Very Unpredictable Ending!
    There are countless reviews here, so I will make this one short. First, I am always amazed when I meet people who say they figured "The Usual Suspects" out by the middle of the movie. I for one was totally floored. I did not see it coming, and was very surprised [no spoilers]. The film has been analyzed, dissected, discussed, and with over 500 reviews, written about quite extensively. However, one of the things I don't understand is why someone would give the film one or two stars. There are many 'good' films that have really never appealed to me, however, I can see that although I might not like the film, it is a good film. Therefore, I would not think of giving such low marks to film for this reason; but would give my analysis of what I thought was weak about a film: Yet, I would still give the film its earned accolades. This film was great however.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie!
    A movie not geared for morons!What a rare find.There aren't many movies that can't be figured-out half way through.This film is great; very clever.Never saw the ending coming.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very clever
    Skillful direction, screenplay, camera angles, acting. :-)I couldn't understand Benicio del Toro's mumbling.It turns out he did that on purpose, as he said in the special features. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Possible product packaging issue
    I purchased the boxed set in mid-August 2006 and unfortunately, due to a defective disk, returned it immediately.I say unfortunately because the set was immaculate otherwise.Amazon's replacement service kindly sent a replacement set the day I was sending the original back--gotta love that; thanks Amazon!HOWEVER, the replacement was not packaged completely.My replacement set did not include individual cardboard envelopes for the three plastic hard cases.(The holder which holds the three hard cases together was there; but each hard case is further protected by a cardboard envelope, which helps keep them from rubbing against each other in the holder.This is important; because each hard case has chrome-like lettering which could rub off over time without the added protection.This is apparently a QC issue wherever the sets are assembled--I do not think Amazon was to blame).So, regrettably, I returned this set as well.Just be aware you may receive a set which doesn't contain individual cardboard envelopes for each plastic hard case.If you can live with that, it's no big deal and you will love this set--I'm just picky!Star Trek rules!And thanks again, Amazon, for your superb customer service!

    1-0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF!!!
    How long is Paramount going to milk the Star Trek name?There is NO WAY I'm going to cough up $175 for a DVD set of three seasons of ANY show.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Huge price drop just in time
    They are going to be re-releasing the original series with added computer generated graphics and effects.When I found this out I went to Amazon to check used copies of the original series so I would have a collection of the origial series without the added CGI.The whole series used to cost upwards to $400 at some retailers, and I was able to pick it up just now brand new off Amazon for ~$175, which is still steep for a non-fan, but is a great deal if like me you want to have a collection of the original series, especially before they add the CGI. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astounding.
    I am certainly "running hot" in terms of documentary selection as it seems like every time I find one which is superlative another comes along and outperforms it. No Direction Home makes one contemplate a great many things. Perhaps the most immediate is the idea that there is nothing in this world that Martin Scorsese cannot do better than his peers. We don't think of the eminent director's name being associated with documentary, but he advances this genre in the same fashion he did short film with his forty-some-minute work, Life Lessons, within New York Stories. Here he accomplishes the impossible as viewers finally are exposed to the man Bob Dylan as opposed to the idol. Unfortunately, the results are fairly jarring. I'm always worshipped Bob but my opinion of him was definitely lowered by this portrait comprised of interviews with the artist and those who knew him "back in the day." On the positive side, we again, just as in Don't Look Back, see firsthand evidence of his genius and how so much of what he did could not have been done by anyone else. His production during this brief moment of time was amazing. As a person though, we find him to be ruthlessly ambitious and opportunistic. Bob Zimmerman was on a mission to make it one way or another and nothing was going to stop him...and nothing did. The most disheartening element in this depiction is the lack of honor he showcased. He appears to have stolen a few hundred records from an old friend, and, even when confronted, refused to give them back. It is implied that he never, even when worth tens of millions, made good on this debt. This is unfortunate but probably reflective of the way in which young Dylan used and discarded others. Relationships seemed to be a means to end and never an end in them self. Joan Baez's observations support this as well. To please her, he merely had to invite her upon stage with him in London, but this was asking too much from a man about to become king. Yet, in the final analysis, he is a king and the person of the artist is always subsidiary to the works produced--at least in the minds of fans like this reviewer who will always love Dylan no matter what he does or says.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A time capsule!
    I first saw this movie as two part "fund raiser" special on PBS. Having grown up in NY in the early sixties this wonderful movie by Scorsese really brought back a flood of memories I didn't even know I had of that period.

    Editorial Review

    Jingoism, beefcake, military hardware, and a Giorgio Moroder rock score reign supreme over taste and logic in this Tony Scott film about a maverick trainee pilot (Tom Cruise) who can't follow the rules at a Navy aviation training facility. The dogfight sequences between American and Soviet jets at the end are absolutely mechanical, though audiences loved it at the time. The love story between Cruise's character and that of Kelly McGillis is like flipping through pages of advertising in a glossy magazine. This designer action movie from 1986 would be all the more appalling were it not for the canny casting of good actors in dumb parts. Standouts include Anthony Edwards--who makes a nice impression as Cruise's average-Joe pal--and the relatively unknown Meg Ryan in a small but memorable appearance. Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Why in the world is this movie still popular?
    I watched Top Gun for the first time since I was a kid the other day, and I just have to ask, what's so great about this movie?It's utter garbage.The plot makes no sense at all.Who are they fighting in the war at the end?And the war only lasts 15 MINUTES?And Tom Cruise ends the war?Huh?The film is also very gay at points.What was with the guys standing around in their underwear and hugging each other throughout the movie?And I won't even get started on the volleyball game.The dialogue for the movie is completely lame and stupid, filled with nothing but sexual references and cursing.It takes real brains to come up with that type of "witty" dialogue.And finally the acting is so hammy and chessy, you actually wonder why this movie made big stars out of Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Meg Ryan, and Tim Robbins.This piece of trash should have ended all of their careers.And most people probably would have wanted their careers to end.In the end, Paramount didn't even want Tom Cruise on their payroll.
    4-0 out of 5 stars 2 Disc Special Edition is a winner!!
    This review is of the two disc special edition of Top Gun, not the prior one disc edition.Top Gun is essentially about a naval pilot's journey through fighter weapons school.He must resist his rebellious individual nature to become the best pilot and also a team player.If you're reading this review, chances are you've already seen the movie so I'll focus on reviewing the dvd.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the Most Overrated Film Ever
    I've seen this several times over the years and still can't make sense of why it's such a favorite. The acting is subpar, the drama cheesy and in my opinion as an active duty sailor, fails quite miserably to capture the true spirit of being in the Navy. To think that lunatic Tom Cruise practically built a career off of this garbage...sigh... ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    When a mail-order apprentice witch (Angela Lansbury) is saddled with three sibling refugees from London during World War II, the outlook is grim. But the kids soon discover her secret and sign on for adventure in the name of England. With the aid of a magical bed, they track down her fraudulent headmaster (David Tomlinson) to find the spell that will aid the Allies. Fascinated that she has actually achieved results with his lessons, he joins forces. The quintet does battle with corrupt booksellers, animated-lion royalty, and, eventually, invading Germans. Songs include Lansbury's Oscar-nominated "The Age of Not Believing." This film is often compared to director Robert Stevenson's earlier effort, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Daughter is Addicted to this movie.
    Bedknobs gets 5 stars because it's one of my daughter's favorites. It gets played over and over again. It's a simple magical story with silly songs. I don't quite understand why this movie is so special to daughter. She is autistic and one thing I know about her tastes is that she gets bored very easily with contrived, canned entertainment. If it comes from the heart, she really takes it to her heart. Maybe the ensemble that put together this movie had a lot of fun doing it and she picks up on that. She prefers it over Mary Poppins and much prefers it over Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang

    4-0 out of 5 stars Is this version117 Minutes or 139 Minutes?

    4-0 out of 5 stars Angela Lansbury Shines as a Witch
    This movie is one of those family charmers that has something for everyone.There is an exciting animated portion for the children.There is a love story for the ladies.And there is a battle with World War II Germans for guys of all ages.Tying all these different aspects together is a wonderful concept; Angela Lansbury is a mail-order witch!

    Like I said, this is the only Tom Cruise film I have EVER enjoyed.His acting is still wooden and lame, but he plays a young, immature kid, so it suits him still today.I am going to buy the soundtrack again after loseing my last copy.Enjoy

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful fairy-tale - Great DTS sound!
    I thoroughly enjoyed this movie - both versions.The score is really beautiful. It gives you feelings of sadness, fear, happiness - yes all of these in great DTS sound. A younger Tom Cruise in the days when he wasn't so well-known, portrays the fictional character and hero who overtakes evil and restores goodness and light to the world. Great makeup jobs on the Lord of Darkness and the goblins for a 1986 film. Great bonus features and good commentary. What a story!What a fairy-tale!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Epic Fantasy
    Long before the success of the "Lord of the Rings", there was "Legend", a movie about good and evil, darkness and light.The story revolves around the mythical faerie creature called the unicorn.As long as unicorns roam the earth, evil can never come to the pure of heart.Due to this, the evil Lord of Darkness (Tim Curry) has sent his most evil goblin Blix (Alice Playten) to cut off the horn of the unicorn.Without their horn, the unicorn loses its power and the earth will be shrouded in darkness.

    Editorial Review

    "I see dead people," whispers little Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment), scared to affirm what is to him now a daily occurrence. This peaked 9-year old, already hypersensitive to begin with, is now being haunted by seemingly malevolent spirits. Child psychologist Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) is trying to find out what's triggering Cole's visions, but what appears to be a psychological manifestation turns out to be frighteningly real. It might be enough to scare off a lesser man, but for Malcolm it's personal--several months before, he was accosted and shot by an unhinged patient, who then turned the gun on himself. Since then, Malcolm has been in turmoil--he and his wife (Olivia Williams) are barely speaking, and his life has taken an aimless turn. Having failed his loved ones and himself, he's not about to give up on Cole.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars "I see dead people..."
    Those words uttered by Haley Joel Osment send a chill down the spines of viewers everywhere.In fact, this movie does not suffer from a shortage of scary or intense moments.Gripping from the start, it does not reveal all of its cards until the end.You will be on the edge of your seat.M. Night Shyamalan is a master of his craft, and this may be his best work.Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Wonderful Film!
    Production and cast were flawless. This is a very intelligent and well-honed production. No one could have performed this role better than did Haley Joel Osment. Bruce Willis was superb! Watch this film from start to finish. Yes, you will enjoy this film!

    Editorial Review

    This '90s update of the Spencer Tracy-Elizabeth Taylor hit is a mix of the pleasant and the silly, a nice enough movie but a little too controlled to become particularly interesting. Steve Martin plays the aging patriarch who is threatened by his daughter's engagement and not-quite-willing to let her go. The writing-directing team of Charles Shyer and Nancy Meyers provides Martin's character with a perhaps too-broad range of comic responsiveness to the situation, some of it gentle (a ritual game of basketball between dad and his little girl) and some of it slapstick (Martin sneaking around his prospective in-laws' house and encountering a guard dog). Martin Short turns up as a wedding coordinator--which has deliriously delicious possibilities--but his inventiveness doesn't quite strike the chord this time. Read more

    Whereas many remakes of beloved films stumble and fall, this "Father of the Bride" shines in its own right.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Still adorable
    Steve Martin hit his stride with this '90s remake.Of course I completely understand the melt down and the freaking out about the money. $250/ a head in '91-was a lot of money.Then I was freakng out because the little boy that played his son looks like the exact replica of the little boy in Signs--but how could that be those films were more than a decade apart.Did a quick search and found that the two actors are brothers.But they could pass for twins when they were younger.Anyway, back to the movie.This a good film about a father learning to let go of his little girl and his checkbook.

    3-0 out of 5 stars not one of my favorites
    Diane Keaton has always been my favorite actress and I love every single one of her movies. But this movie I don't care for much because she's not really in it for a long. If the movie wouldn't have had Diane keaton i wouldn't have cared for it to much. One of the worst movies i have ever seen with diane keaton. the second father of the bride is much better than the first and it doesn't matter which one of them you watch first.i can't tell you what the second one is about you just have to watch it yourself. ...

    Editorial Review

    Roundly dismissed as one of Steven Spielberg's least successful efforts, this very underrated film poignantly follows the WorldWar II adventures of young Jim (a brilliant Christian Bale), caught in the throes of the fall of China. What if you once had everything and lost it all in an afternoon? What if you were only 12? Bale's transformation, from pampered British ruling-class child to an imprisoned, desperate, nearly feral boy, is nothing short of stunning. Also stunning are exceptional sets, cinematography, and music (the last courtesy of John Williams) that enhance author J.G.Ballard's and screenwriter Tom Stoppard's depiction of another, less familiar casualty of war.Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Falls a Bit Short of Being a Masterpiece. Malkovich is Wonderful.
    "Empire of the Sun" is directed by Steven Spielberg and has the makings of a masterpiece. It's got Spielberg directing it, it's a semi-war film, and its got John Malkovich in it. Problem is, it's too long and it seems glossed over a little bit. That doesn't mean it's not a good movie though and it is. The movie is about a young British boy named Jamie (Christian Bale. Yes, Christian "Batman" Bale), living in China (or Japan, I forget which) as a war rages on. Jamie ends up getting separated from his parents and ends up with two Americans named Basie (Malkovich) and Frank (Joe Pantoliano). After Jamie (who Basie redubs Jim) gets caught by the Japanese, with Basie and Frank, they all get sent to concentration camps. The movie's not sure if Basie is a good guy or a bad guy. Immediately in the film, he's made out to be a bad guy that you can kind of like. But later in the film, the screenwriters seemed confused. I'm not going to go into much more detail about the plot, except almost an hour and a half (of it's 2 hours, 30 minutes running time) is spent in the camp. The film has a couple tense, action scenes though. Anyway, Bale showed a lot of promise (that he would live up to) in this film although his character does become annoying frequently. Malkovich is, as always, fun to watch (although he doesn't have a lot of screentime. He actually does, but the movie is so long it seems like he doesn't). The movie's biggest flaws are its running time and its happy ending. I have no problems with long movies, but this was just way overbloated. The happy ending seemed so out of context to, it seems almost as if a studio overpowered Spielberg. Anybody who loves John Malkovich or Steven Spielberg should like the film though, it is worthy of checking out. I want to add; Ben Stiller also appears in the film as a minor character. It's kind of interesting to see him.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Oha ... another Spielberg
    One of the worst movies ever ... unconvincing and exhaustively boring. Spielberg's brilliant at popcorn movies like "Back to the future" and "The Duel", the rest (seen "AI"?!) is shallow at best ... i still wonder how he managed to NOT completely ruin "Schindler's List"??

    I liked the movie until they got to the main camp and you see people playing golf and women doing laundry like there at weekend camp site. I guess the Japs just housed and fed these people to be generous. I guess they had enough Japanese civilians to do all the work in the factories. ... Read more

    Great movies for those older children to watch with their parents - these movies will hold the attention of both age groups.I hesitate to recommend these movies to younger children because of some parts of the movie - parents, watch the movie first and make up your own mind.The graphics of both movies are top notch and coupled with a strong storyline makes for a movie that you will watch again and again.

    The Night Mare Before Christmas and James & The Giant peach is one of many favorites of our familes. After opening on christmas the kids were so excited, the next day we sat to watch our movies. Night Mare Before Christmas started of skipping but did play so they kids were happy. James and the Giant Peach will not play AT ALL!!! none of our dvd playes or neighbors dvd players can read the disk, one point dvd player said there was no disk inserted! Did we get a blank bootleg copy and were to belive we paid a hwat we thought decent price for these brand new! Not Happy at all. Have bought several movies of amazon with no problems and it only take that one time to make you go somewhere else and to pass the word!
